Chocolate-Pistachio Apricots

1/2 cup finely chopped pistachios
6 ounces semisweet chocolate, chopped
24 dried large apricots

Line a baking sheet with waxed paper. Put pistachios in a shallow bowl. Melt chocolate. Remove from heat. Holding apricots from one end, dip them 1 at a time into the chocolate, turning to coat about 3/4 of the apricot. Use a knife to scrape excess chocolate off the bottom back into bowl. Hold apricot over bowl of pistachios and sprinkle the nuts over the chocolate.

Put apricot (nut side down) on baking sheet and repeat with remaining apricots. Chill until chocolate is set, about 1 hour. Store in an airtight container between sheets of waxed paper in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.

Melting chocolate: Be gentle. Fill a saucepan with 2 to 3 in. of water. Put finely chopped chocolate in a heatproof bowl that will fit over pan (the bottom of the bowl should not touch the water); set bowl aside.

Bring water to a boil, turn off heat, then set bowl over pan. Use a heatproof spatula or wooden spoon to stir the chocolate frequently and encourage even melting. Once the chocolate is melted, stir well and use immediately. Makes 24 apricots

G.I. Joes

Sloppy Joes are not easy to eat--that's half the fun for kids of all ages. Adults who like spicy food can add hot sauce at the table.

1 cup boiling water
1/2 cup sun-dried tomatoes, packed without oil
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 1/2 cups chopped onion
1 cup chopped red bell pepper
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 tablespoon low-sodium soy sauce
1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
1 teaspoon sugar
1 teaspoon chili powder
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 (28-ounce) can crushed tomatoes, undrained
1 (12-ounce) bag frozen soy crumbles, thawed (such as Morningstar Farms)
6 (2-ounce) Kaiser rolls or hamburger buns

Combine boiling water and sun-dried tomatoes in a bowl, and let stand 5 minutes or until tomatoes are soft. Drain and chop tomatoes.

Heat the olive oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add chopped onion, red bell pepper, and garlic; sauté 3 minutes or until vegetables are tender. Stir in the sun-dried tomatoes, soy sauce, and the next 8 ingredients (soy sauce through crushed tomatoes).

Bring mixture to a boil; reduce heat, and simmer 20 minutes or until slightly thick, stirring the mixture occasionally. Stir in soy crumbles; cook 2 minutes or until thoroughly heated, stirring frequently. Spoon about 2/3 cup crumbles mixture onto bottom half of each roll; top with top halves of rolls. Makes 6 servings

Cheddar Witch's Fingers

5 tablespoons butter
1/4 pound (about 1 cup packed) shredded extra-sharp cheddar cheese
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons cornmeal
1 large egg
Kosher salt
30 sliced almonds

In a food processor or bowl, whirl or rub together butter, cheese, flour, and cornmeal until the mixture has the texture of wet sand. Add egg and whirl or stir with a fork until dough holds together.

Scrape dough onto a sheet of cooking paper or parchment, 12 to 14 in. wide and about 14 in. long. Top with another equal-sized sheet of paper and pat dough into a 1/2-in.-thick circle. Wrap in plastic and freeze 15 minutes, or refrigerate up to 3 days.

Roll dough into a rectangle about 8 in. wide and 10 in. long, working carefully to avoid creases in paper. Return to freezer for 15 minutes. Meanwhile, preheat oven to 350°.

Peel off top paper and use a sharp knife to cut the dough into 30 strips, each about 1/2 in. thick and 5 in. long. Place each strip on a large baking sheet. Sprinkle with salt to taste, then use your fingers to round the top of each strip into a fingertip shape.

Use a sharp knife to score shallow "knuckle" lines in each finger, then press an almond "nail" into the tip. If you like, bend each finger in places to make it look knobby. Bake the fingers until an even light brown, about 15 minutes. Transfer to a rack to cool. Makes about 30 crackers

Chocolate Lava Cakes with Pistachio Cream

These flourless chocolate cakes are as rich as a restaurant dessert, but they're made with a fraction of the fat and no dairy butter. When these cakes bake, the gooey filling causes the center to sink in.

1 cup shelled dry-roasted pistachios
1 3/4 cups sugar, divided
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa
2 large eggs
5 large egg whites
2 ounces bittersweet chocolate, coarsely chopped
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
Cooking spray
1 cup 2% reduced-fat milk
Dash of salt
Powdered sugar (optional)

Place pistachios in a food processor; process until a crumbly paste forms (about 3 1/2 minutes), scraping sides of bowl once.

Place 1/4 cup pistachio butter, 1 1/4 cups sugar, cocoa, eggs, and egg whites in top of a double boiler; stir well with a whisk. Add chocolate; cook over simmering water until chocolate melts and sugar dissolves (about 3 minutes). Remove from heat; add baking powder and vanilla. Stir with a whisk until smooth. Spoon batter into 12 muffin cups coated with cooking spray. Chill 2 hours.

Place remaining 1/4 cup pistachio butter and 1/2 cup sugar in food processor; pulse 4 times or until combined. Add milk and salt; process until smooth. Strain mixture through a sieve into a small saucepan; discard solids. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer 4 minutes or until thick. Remove from heat; pour into a bowl. Cover and chill.

Preheat oven to 450°. Bake cakes at 450° for 9 minutes or until almost set (centers will not be firm). Let cool in pan 5 minutes. Invert each cake onto a dessert plate; drizzle with sauce. Garnish with powdered sugar, if desired. Makes 12 servings

Pumpkin-Maple Crème Caramel

Freshly grated nutmeg gives this crème caramel its distinctive spiciness. Regular ground nutmeg can be substituted, but this flavor won't be as intense.

1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup water
Cooking spray
1/3 cup packed dark brown sugar
2 tablespoons maple syrup
3 large eggs
1/2 cup canned pumpkin
1/2 cup milk
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 (12-ounce) can evaporated milk
Freshly grated nutmeg (optional)

Preheat oven to 325°. Combine 1/2 cup sugar and 1/4 cup water in a small, heavy saucepan over medium heat; cook until sugar dissolves, stirring frequently. Continue cooking until golden (about 4 minutes). Immediately pour into 6 (6-ounce) ramekins or custard cups coated with cooking spray, tilting each cup quickly until caramelized sugar coats bottom of cup. Set aside.

Beat brown sugar, syrup, and eggs in a medium bowl with a whisk. Add pumpkin and next 5 ingredients (pumpkin through evaporated milk), stirring until well-blended. Divide mixture evenly among prepared custard cups.

Place cups in a 13 x 9-inch baking pan; add hot water to pan to a depth of 1 inch. Bake at 325° for 1 hour and 10 minutes or until a knife inserted in center comes out clean. Remove cups from pan. Cover and chill at least 4 hours.

Loosen edges of custards with a knife or rubber spatula. Place a dessert plate, upside down, on top of each cup; invert onto plates. Drizzle any remaining caramelized syrup over custards. Garnish with freshly grated nutmeg, if desired. Makes 6 servings

Maple-Brown Sugar Angel Cake with Walnuts

Look for brown sugar that is granulated; it dissolves better in the batter. Otherwise, sift brown sugar before using.

1 cup sifted cake flour
1 cup granulated sugar, divided
1/3 cup packed brown sugar
1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
12 large egg whites
1 teaspoon cream of tartar
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 teaspoon maple extract

Topping:
6 tablespoons powdered sugar
3 tablespoons maple syrup
3/4 coarsely chopped walnuts, toasted

Preheat oven to 325°. To prepare cake, lightly spoon flour into a dry measuring cup; level with a knife. Combine flour, 1/2 cup granulated sugar, brown sugar, and nutmeg, stirring with a whisk.

Place egg whites in a large bowl; beat with a mixer at high speed until foamy. Add cream of tartar and salt; beat until soft peaks form. Add 1/2 cup granulated sugar, 2 tablespoons at a time, beating until stiff peaks form. Beat in extracts.

Sift 1/4 cup flour mixture over egg white mixture; fold in. Repeat procedure with flour mixture, 1/4 cup at a time.

Spoon batter into an ungreased 10-inch tube pan, spreading evenly. Break air pockets by cutting through batter with a knife. Bake at 325° for 50 minutes or until cake springs back when lightly touched. Invert pan; cool completely. Loosen cake from sides of pan using a narrow metal spatula. Invert cake onto plate.

To prepare topping, combine powdered sugar and maple syrup in a small bowl, stirring with a whisk until smooth. Drizzle sugar mixture over top of cake; sprinkle with walnuts. Makes 12 servings

Crunchy Vanilla Clusters

1 (3-ounce) package ramen noodles
3/4 cup pecan pieces
1/2 cup sliced almonds
2 tablespoons butter or margarine, melted
1 (12-ounce) package white chocolate or vanilla morsels

Gently crush ramen noodles before opening package. Open package and discard flavoring packet. Sauté crushed noodles, pecans, and almonds in butter in a large skillet over medium heat until toasted. (Be careful not to crush noodles too finely while sautéing.) Pour noodle mixture into a large bowl to cool.

Melt white chocolate morsels according to package directions. Pour melted chocolate over cooled noodle mixture, tossing gently to coat. Drop candy mixture by rounded tablespoonfuls onto wax paper; let stand until firm (about 45 minutes). Store clusters in an airtight container at room temperature.

Note: It's important to melt white chocolate according to package directions. If heated too quickly or at too high a temperature, the morsels will not melt properly. Makes about 3 dozen
